The Enjoy St Albans Food and Drink festival is set to make a welcome return this September.

Now in its 14th year, the much loved festival features an exciting programme of events that will appeal to the taste buds of food lovers.

One of the main draws includes Tom Kerridge’s Pub in the Park on 10-12 September. 

The event will see some of the UK’s finest chefs and chart-topping musicians come together in Verulamium Park.

Acts lined-up to perform over the three days include All Saints, Basement Jaxx, Gabrielle and the Lightening Seeds.

The 2021 festival culminates with the FEASTIVAL street event on 26 September – where over 100 food and drink stalls will line the city centre.

Due to the pandemic, awards for the district's best food and drink businesses have been scaled down to one honour.

The prestigious Kate D’Arcy Award recognises an individual who has given exceptional customer service.

This year, residents are being asked to nominate someone who has gone out of their way to help their community, throughout the public health emergency.

Denise Parsons, Manager of St Albans Business Improvement District (BID), said: “We are delighted to sponsor the festival which celebrates our food and drink heroes who have gone above and beyond during lockdown.

“There is something for everyone to enjoy, including live music which is hugely welcomed and adds to the vibrancy of our outdoor events.” 

Visitors to this year’s festival will be able to take part in a 24-hour photography challenge and pub quizzes.

Other highlights across September include film nights, livestock events, street food nights along with live radio events.

St Albans is well known for its vibrant food and drink scene.

The city has the most pubs per square mile in the country, and is home to award-winning establishments.
